Paper lines...


OK, so I'm making the most out of my last official day of the Easter holidays and squeezing in another post today :)

I didn't realise but the deadline for the current Runway Inspired Challenge is tonight! Eeek!

So the idea I had for this challenge that had been sitting happily in my mind had to be put into practice, pronto!


You expected green, right? Well I was totally taken with the angular lines and folds in the dress as it strutted its stuff down the catwalk. Those lines lead to me playing with strips of paper and I came up with this pattern.

The hello is stamped in the top corner of the pattern to draw your eye to it, much like the dress uses colour and pattern to catch your eye to that particular section too.

Well the weekend has officially started over here so I'm off to make the most of it before work on Monday. I hope you have a super duper weekend yourself too!

Catch ya later!
